Bikini bodybuilding sponsors aren’t easy to find. Steadfast Nutrition has ensured that it backs this group of dauntless women who’re determined to pursue their passion and not just athletes of more popular sporting categories.
The company has propelled many athletes to excellence not just through its nutritional supplements but also by taking care of their financial needs when required.
Surbhi, Jyoti and Shikha’s success drives home the message that sporting a bikini is not just about glamour but also involves a lot of hard work behind the scenes.
The trio was unanimous in their praise of the backing they had received from Steadfast Nutrition for their preparation. All three attributed their performance at the event to Steadfast’s nutritional supplements.
Surbhi Jaiswar said that apart from a rigorous diet and exercise regimen, she relied on Steadfast’s recently-launched metabolism booster, LeanFast, for her perfect bikini body.
Surbhi also relied on numerous other Steadfast supplements to build her terrific form.

Jyoti Gupta thanked Steadfast for its “invaluable” support in her championship prep. The bikini athlete, who was making her comeback to the stage after a long time, said the nutritional support and team backing provided by Steadfast Nutrition had a tremendous impact on her performance.
“The preparation for NPC north India was crucial. Along with dieting and training, things were a bit tough because it was a comeback to the stage after a long time. But the immense support from Steadfast Nutrition from the day I entered the team and the amazing support from my coaching team made all the things very fluent and easy.”
Jyoti now has her sights on the Amateur Olympia in Mumbai. “The journey is not over yet because the Amateur Olympia is going to happen in two weeks, and once again I am ready to fight the next battle with my amazing support system,” she says.
